Old Ironsides

(The first book in the Old Ironsides series)
A novel by

Centuries after three quarters of the human population on earth fell victim to a savage plague, a new enemy rises to threaten the existence of humanity. A population divided by those still fully human, those part machine and those who are both dead and alive at the same time, what it means to be truly human has already been long forgotten.

Enter one man who knows. Encased in cryo-stasis for three hundred years, his connection to the past could potentially save the human race from extinction once again, if he can stay alive long enough. Pursued by enemies on all sides, Nathan Ironside has one mission: to survive. Because if he doesn't nobody will...


Praise for Dean Crawford:

"The fossilized remains of a 7,000-year-old creature dug from the sands of the Negev Desert in Israel become the bones of contention in Dean Crawford's fast-paced debut thriller... The book neatly threads together a wild variety of plotlines." -Wall Street Journal

"... cleverly introduced premise... assured pacing and plotting... " - Publishers Weekly

"The action is frenetic, in the vein of Matthew Reilly's Scarecrow series. Crawford is an able storyteller who smoothly orchestrates the plot's twists and turns... " - Kirkus Reviews

"... brilliant high-concept, high-octane thriller... ." - The Guardian

"A fast-paced and entertaining yarn." - Melbourne Age

"Partly mythical read, part thriller this pacy tale is a page turner guaranteed to keep you up late." - The Sun

"Get the cameras rolling - Indiana Jones meets Alien. What a combination of mystery, suspense, and unspeakable horror. I loved it!" - R.L. Stine

"This is an amazingly good, intelligently told novel by an exciting new British author." - Eurocrime

"Earth-shattering intrigue, hyperdrive action and a desperate race to save humanity, cranked up to the max with scarily realistic science and apocalyptic religion thrown in for good measure . . . a major new talent has hit the mystery thriller scene!" - Scott Mariani
